Green beans can be hard to digest sometimes, especially if they’re just lightly cooked. This method of braising the green beans makes them soft and delicious. Green beans are low FODMAP in 15 green beans. If you tolerate the FODMAP sorbitol, you may be able to eat up to 25 green beans (moderate sorbitol).
